Summerhill Pyramid Winery Estate Grown Biodynamic Pinot Noir Demeter Certified 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe second iteration of this biodynamic pinot noir is youthful, and it is exhibiting intense, pure primary pinot noir. It was fermented in 10,000 L foudres, and pressed off into a stainless steel tank to go through malolactic fermentation. It is bottled early, and considering 2018, it does well with another year in bottle to settle into itself. Vibrant and fresh, it opens with a cloudy pale red colour. There is plenty of soft texture here underlying bright fruit, with plenty of acidity and that sour black cherry mixing with a touch of soy and balsamic. It’s going to be fine, just give it some time, say 12 to 18 months, to fill out and show its stuff. Natural wine fans should snap this up.Tasted: 30 September 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Summerhill Pyramid WineryDistributors: AmoVino Distributors Ltd
